At the CTC’s AGM earlier this month it was revealed membership levels are in rude health with another rise – to a record high of 67,058.

Attendees heard that member groups and affiliated clubs across the UK are continuing to thrive and that Government and Big Lottery cycle projects and initiatives are hitting new highs. 

CTC members voted to change the constitution to full charitable status so that it meets charity law. Over 11,000 people voted on the change, with a majority in favour of change of 88.3 per cent. The club can now apply for registration with the Charity Commission to merge with the CTC Charitable Trust.

The CTC said it maintains an active cycle campaigning presence, working directly in over thirty local authorities.

“The vote on the Memorandum and Articles of Association was a very clear demonstration that the membership will respond with a strong consensus to Council’s leadership,” said CTC Council chair David Cox.

“This presents us with a great opportunity and also a challenge to build on this support with our work in the coming year on moving forward unification, supporting members and member groups and improving our governance and ways of working.”

The AGM also saw a prize giving evening awarding outstanding CTC volunteers.

Arvato manages the CTC's membership services.
